 Ready for Battle is the 26th chapter of the Skip Beat! manga series.


Why did Kyoko slap Kanae?! When she learns was the reason behind it, will Kanae finally be friends with Kyoko?

Chapter Summary

Kyoko tells Kanae "Money can't buy talent and neither can it buy people's hearts" Kyoko continues to tell Kanae that after she failed the audition she gave up too fast because she had already decided she had failed, but then found her true feelings.

Kyoko makes Kanae remember her own feelings and tells her that if she gives up and runs away instead of fighting for it, she will feel much worse. Kotonami starts to cheer up and Kyoko comes up with an idea thanks to Ren's previous words. They can make an impact with the audition judges, with something only they have! Kotonami looks at Kyoko in horror.....

After they leave, the certain man that overheard their conversation uncovers himself and thinks it'll be fun to see what they came up with. Meanwhile, Yashiro asks Ren why he was nice to Kyoko and actually gave her good advice, and Ren remembers the time when he met her when he was younger.

Next audition time, Kyoko and Kotonami are dressed in the pink Love Me Club uniforms and prepared to kick some behinds. Meanwhile, the certain man from before who turns out to be Ushio Kurosaki, the director--tells the other members of the panel that he has decided to modify the idea for the commercial and will use two people.
